 TheMovieBoy Review: Remembering the Cosmos Flower (1997)
Japanese filmmaker Junichi Suzuki's "Remembering the Cosmos Flower" is such a well-meaning drama that you almost feel guilty criticizing it, but, ultimately, the movie paints a decidedly syrupy, manipulative picture on the subject of the AIDS virus.
"Remembering the Cosmos Flower" is mature and realistic when it deals with Akiko and Natsumi's close friendship, as well as the portrayal of how everyone deals with her inevitable death, but along the way Suzuki has felt the need to include several melodramtic scenes that ring with a resounding falseness.
"Remembering the Cosmos Flower" cannot be faulted for its superior actors or some of the memorable relationships that are developed here, but it is an otherwise mechanical motion picture, one that is both predictable, in a sappy sort of way, and out-of-date.

"Remembering the Cosmos Flower" once again reflects Suzuki's concern for defending the innocent from prejudice: the townspeople are divided into those who, fueled by fear and ignorance, want Akiko kicked out of school, and those who support her, knowing her sufferings.
"Sandcastle" is set in urban Tokyo, a different world from the rural Japan of "Remembering the Cosmos Flower." Shuhei Kido and his wife live in a cramped apartment in Tokyo with three children, perfectly cast: the bright eldest son, juvenile delinquent middle child, and cute youngest daughter.
